Lay Mytimehascome @ 3.185/40 in the 15:35 at Salisbury

Back Matorico @ 5.85/1 in the 17:20 at York

We start at Salisbury for our negative of the day in the 15:35 1m2f Maiden Stakes. We are opposing the Roger Varian-trained runner Mytimehascome who has drifted out from a low of 2.6813/8 to a high of 3.185/40. Although this three year old is obviously held in high regard, with an entry in the Oaks and Ribblesdale Stakes, today she comes up against the another well fancied maiden in the form of the Sir Michael Stoute trained - Shall We. We hope that the strong market support for his rival proves significant and we will be laying Mytimehascome today.

Next we head north to York for our each way selection in the 16:15 5f Listed Race, and there has been noticeable support for the William Knight-trained Lady Macapa who has seen support from a high of 10.67 to a current low of 7.26/1. The filly's best run of last year came when finishing third in a 6f Listed event and she showed even better form when dropped down to 5f. She finished second on her latest run in what was a decent handicap at Sandown last month, and at her current price we feel that she may prove good value for a run in to the places.

Finally we stay at York for our back selection in the last race on the card - the 17:20 Handicap over 2m - and there has been heavy support for Matorico, in from a high of 8.23 to a low of 5.85/1. The five year old showed some useful French flat form back in 2014 and seemed to benefit from the addition of a tongue tie last time out when winning a competitive handicap hurdle at Cheltenham last month. With the way he ran that day we feel that he will go close today on his switch back from hurdling for a yard who won this event back in 2013.
